George W. Joyce (1847–1895) was a professional baseball player, who played centerfielder for the 1886 Washington Nationals. He played in one game for the Nationals that season and did not have an at-bat. It is not known whether he batted or fielded with either his left or right hand. Some games or websites list George Joyce as right-handed, however this is because of the lack of information on the player.

Professional career[edit]

George Joyce, at the age of 38-39(unknown due to lack of birth date, only birth year), played on the Washington Nationals team that spanned from 1886-1889. He played one career game on August 14, 1886, against the Philadelphia Quakers. He played centerfield during this game, and never got up to bat. He was the second oldest player on the team, only behind Joe Start. He did not play again that season, or ever in the MLB.
